There are no obligations tied to this consultation — this is an opportunity for us to meet and for you to ask questions. There are no up-front costs either and the fixed-price proposal is entirely free. We’ll get to discuss your renovation in detail and take measurements.
Talk to a renovator (613) 796-5253
The building process is the most challenging part of renovating. It will test the patience of even the calmest, most composed homeowner. As your renovator, I’m here to take the headache and stress away from your project. During the pre-construction phase I apply for all necessary permits and take care of any other paperwork that needs to be completed before construction can begin. You aren’t expected to make any hard decisions or deal with any contractors. At this stage, you can sit back and relax; things are well underway.
Our response times are the best in the business. You won’t find a renovator that gets back to you faster than I do. We update your renovation progress daily. You can access your renovation status at any time. We also use a communication platform to stay connected with you. This platform allows me to share important files and data, and it allows you to provide us feedback and ask questions.
We encourage clients to set aside 5-10% of their budget for contingencies. With almost all renovations, there will be some sort of unforeseen item that comes up. When this happens, we present all available options to you.
We offer our recommendations, but it is your renovation and you have the final say. Once a course of action has been decided, we work with our team to get the changes moving quickly, so we can avoid delays.
Accomplishing a successful renovation
The last ten percent of any renovation is the most difficult. When the project reaches the ninety percent mark, we schedule a meeting to plan the critical path to the finish line. We do a walk-through of the renovation to catch any items that haven’t been completed, as well as any deficiencies. These are documented in a punch list and will be completed before the final progressive payment is due.
Once punch list items have been addressed, we do a final walk through. But don’t worry – we don’t say goodbye forever. All our renovations come with a 2-year warranty on materials and labour. If anything happens, we will be there to fix it.
